In the last couple of months, there have been some pretty different things happening in my life- and it seems it’s all for the better. I’ve started a new job as an instructional assistant in a junior high school classroom. I really love it. There are many interesting things happening there- as well as many … Continue reading I still love the library. Really, I do.
Unfortunately for me, I’ve never been good at styling my own hair. My mother never did anything beyond hot rollers in her hair, and she never styled mine. I didn’t have relatives (other than my grandmother, who has short hair- only about 2 inches long) who were big into styling their hair, so I didn’t … Continue reading Learning to Braid Thanks to my Local Library.

I’m not looking for a new religion, but I know my knowledge about Scientology is extremely limited. I think of Scientologists in (possibly) inaccurate ways.

I don’t want to say a book sucked, because any book is better than … Continue reading Taking excellent book recommendations.
That’s right. I didn’t know much about Harry Potter other than he is a wizard, and he is really popular. Somehow I managed to go all this time without investing much interest in the series. Sure, I’ve been curious in the past… but with 7 or 8 books and movies to catch up on… I … Continue reading I Gave Harry Potter a Chance.
